Saw the first two posts by the troll and realized the 25-post count is going to amount to people feeding it.

Some things never change.

I bought the Duke3d for multiplayer, namely coop, because all Duke3d ports are half-assed and have broken coop.

... only to run into the small print that it's "pending". It's been pending for months and they missed their promised July deadline because they shifted resources to work on Shadow Warrior.

A spit in the face of paying customers, not dissimilar from behavior of Hi-Rez and what they did with Tribes: Ascend.

I loved District 9, but Blomkamp may be a one-hit wonder. Elysium looks like a movie more concerned with Leninist propaganda than entertainment.

Despite Matt Damon, I'll give it a chance anyway. I watched "The Happening" in theaters, guess I'm big on... chances.

Carmack is partially responsible for failure of Quake Wars, which was an excellent game brought down by shitty performance from early version of his MEGATEXTURE garbage.

If I was the devs that licensed that godawful engine from him, I'd sue.

Silly Tim. Rage doesn't have a "universe". It is a collection of generic tropes, implemented through terrible fucking level design.

It's the kind of design where you have invisible walls. THAT KIND. Coming from id software, the former king of FPS.

Rage is dead. id has been dead since Romero left, really.

I love the drama. It's like Derek Smart is alive again.

Wait, Derek Smart is still alive, isn't he.

Yeah except none of the build engine ports have reliable coop with multiplayer save/loading.

So I'm still waiting for "proper" of that with Duke3D, and they already released Shadow Warrior instead of working on that.

There's something very confusing about this game which made me stop bothering with it in beta. It felt purposeless, without even basic MMO attempts at narrative, surrounded with constantly spawning enemies...

Hopefully they'll overcome that somehow, because I really want to like it.

Myth 2 was a well-known PC title and it did well.

The Duke3D redux port STILL hasn't delivered the promised coop multiplayer, which is the only reason I bought it anyway (most Duke3d ports don't have working coop), and they already release Shadow Warrior?

Fuck them.

It is quite possible that PS4 games will look better than what the highest-end PC can pull off.

There is a TON of CPU/GPU power that is being wasted through the pipelines of an all-purpose system such as Windows.

Consoles always have a much shorter pipeline and far fewer background processes, and it's on controlled hardware which can be severely optimized for without fearing for compatibility.

That's how they managed to port Quake 2 to the freaking PS1. This is how PS2 pulled off games like Shadow of the Colossus and Black (with shader effects the console isn't capable off). This is how they got a near-full-featured GTA title on the Nintendo DS. This is how end-of-life PS3 titles like "Last Of Us" look pretty stunning considering the console is based on GeForce3-strength hardware.

PS4 hardware is incomparably more powerful, so I don't exclude the possibility that it's going to beat PC in terms of visuals.

I tried playing L4D2 a week ago and zombies were lagging all over the place (instantly changing location on screen) with a ping of 50.

The movement in the game feels more like walking on a soapy floor, too. Something's off. This isn't the game I played a year ago.
